I've tried leaving the grass longer, keeping it cut shorter, not letting them out to free range till later in the afternoon, making the kids try to keep them coralled on the lawn, but nothing seems to be working. We have 2 acres and at least 6 more outback that is nothing but woods/nothing and all these girls want to do is go running across the street to the neighbors or to the nieghbors next door. They even ran right through my garden (and didn't touch a thing!!) they always have penty of food and water, plenty of room in their fenced run ( where they have been grounded to the last couple of days) I don't want them to have to stay in their run/coop all the time. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to keep them home with taking out a second mortgage for fencing?
